During this month, so many things happen, and we shall look at some of them in this article.

Three Things That Certainly Must Happen During Ramadan 

1. Reduced Production Of Agricultural Products

You see it is a fact that most farm produce enjoyed in Nigeria comes from the Northern region.


Most of the farmers in the North practice Islam and in Islam, Ramadan is compulsory for every Muslim faithful.

During Ramadan fasting, farmers tend to do less than they normally do, trying to conserve energy, and this affects production.


These farmers end up producing a lesser quantity of products than they usually produce during this period.

2. Increase In Price Of Foodstuff

As important as this period is in the lives of the Muslim faithful it does not leave without making its mark.

Because the quantity of farm products produced in this period is low, it results in a hike in the price of foodstuff.

Also, demand in this period is always higher than supply.

3. Increased Spending

Consumers always spend more than expected during this season because the price of most items suddenly increases.

Those who do not feel the impact of the hike in the price of foodstuff are those who plan ahead or buy foodstuff in bulk.

This year, the impact of the Ramadan fasting may further increase the hardship in the country.
